Just for kicks

This may be old news, for most of you, but I wanted to share this picture with everyone.

I think it's great, myself, so I thought it would be nice to post it.

I'd say it's the farthest thing from a spoiler, although I haven't seen it happen, yet, in the series.
Beware the CUTE

A/N: Gomen for the long wait time between chapters! I got sidetracked by school and also a one!shot smut!bunny that left me hanging at one point (I'll hopefully have that fic up at some point, but it has nothing to do with this fic ^^). And now without further ado, I bring to you chapter 20

He was lost. Everything was not as it seemed, and he was finding that even moving was non-obtainable...
Snowball fight!

I'm a loser

Okay, so I saw this picture the other day, and I couldn't resist. Unfortunately, despite wanting to make it into an icon, it refused to work. I'll probably say this a million times, but I have MS Paint, so yeah... I'm lucky if I get to resize an image and have it come out looking nice.

I'm not sure how many of you watch Family Guy, but after the episode I saw a little while ago, when I saw this picture it was the first thing I thought of. How pathetic, am I right?

Anyway, on to the pic:

He just looks so sad!

[btw, if anyone's willing to make it into an icon, I have the base pic for it.]

Because I love you all... - Edited to include both Calendars

And I know you've been asking for pictures/scans of the calendars...
Save what you want, please don't hotlink, my boyfriend's room mate is gracious enough to let me use his server and such, I already feel bad for using it as I do.
I need to apologise because these aren't the OMG GREATEST pictures in the world but... it's kinda hard when they're so large. I was so concerned with not getting glare that they've got a bit of perspective -_-

The English Alchemist (Part VII)

As much fun as I am having with A Fullmetal Christmas Carol, it would be awful of me to slack off on posting the English Alchemist, especially considering that the next lesson is one you've been waiting for so eagerly. And the award for the worst grasp of the English language so far in this book goes resoundingly to everyone's favorite undead palm tree...

(Once again, here is a SPOILER WARNING! This book draws on the ENTIRE SERIES for its examples, which means it is chockablock with spoilers. You have been warned.)

And so, without further ado, I bring you, scanned and translated where necessary...the seventh (sin? no...) installment of The English Alchemist!

Coming next time...Hughes' lesson! ^_^

News from the world of Newtype!

This month's issue of Newtype has two articles on everybody's (well, at least this community's) favorite Alchemist of the Fullmetal kind!

Newtype USA December 2005 includes an episode 35+ spoiler article. It's divided into three sections- "High Tension", "Living in Sin" and "Military Madness". Collapse )

"High Tension" summarizes about the Philosopher's stone, basically.

"Living In Sin" goes into the Homunculi briefly and hints at the end of the series.

"Military Madness" talks about the ever crack-tastic episode 37, and the main characters. (My favorite caption: "Sure enough, this is Armstrong's sister. Holy crap...." The image is of her lifting the piano. XD)

After that, Page 93 details the "Fullmetal Alchemist Summer Expo" in Tokyo in August. Arakawa-sensei's "delicate watercolor illustrations" were on display, rarely-seen manga panels and even a lifesize model of Alphonse and Edward. (I swear to god, those pants must be leather.) There are photos of the military's shoulder-rank-display things. (They've got the gold stars and blue and yellow stripes on them, you know what I mean.) They even had something that resembled Winry's workbench, tools were spread out on top of it and someone's Automail arm could be seen. "Alchemy symbols were scrawled on a wall, and below them stood a bookcase of worn textbooks and shelves containing potions and a few preserved animal specimens- creepy!" They also had Roy Mustang's desk- his gloves were left in a tray next to a specially-made prop phone. They had State Alchemist Medals, certificates and paraphernalia. "The Museum-like atmosphere then took an ominous turn with the red-tinged Philosopher's Stone Chamber from the series' mid-season climax re-created as a waiting room (a bit twisted when you think about it)."

The best part of the expo?

"It [the philosohper's waiting room XD] led to the event's final attraction, a short film screening that cast viewers as a State Alchemist trainee. Various characters on screen would intermittently address the audience, creating a thrilling yet hilarious vibe. A short briefing was followed by an air raid, then a frenetic confrontation with the evil gang of Homunculi."

The article goes on to say "Now that's fanservice."

GWF part 51

Series Title: Games Without Frontiers
Series Rating:: PG - NC-17
Main Characters:Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye
Other Characters: Maes & Gracia Hughes, Edward & Alphonse Elric, Jean Havoc

Synopsis: "I'm done with playing games."

Spoilers: There may be quite a few spoilers interwoven into the next chapters that relate to the end of the anime. I’m not using them as they actually are in the anime, but as they relate to the crack theories developed in this story.

Author's Notes: Completely AU. My own little private timeline; my own private little world. Yeah, and, just to add, my own little crackpot theories. Sometimes I will succumb to unabashed canon rape, but then Crack has issues like that. He’s in therapy, but there’s a long road ahead for him. Nothing else related to any episode of any kind, except the usage of the character(s) in question, though some events in some episodes will be woven in as artistic license warrants. Commentary is certainly welcome and tends to make me go “whee!”

fanart- RizaxMaes

i drew this over the summer when i was at Princeton Review. i am pleased with how this came out. this was inspired by greywing when she wrote some drabbles for 30_kisses for this pairing. the scene i drew relates to the 29th drabble, "the sound of waves"

**i believe that this is work-safe, considering that they are mostly covered**

without further ado,

by the way, i did not write that drabble. greywing did.

I made 12 icons for my FMA fansite and I just thought I'd post them here as well. This is my first time ever making icons, so please be polite if you have something to say about them.

If you have some manga icons of your own that you'd like to donate to the fansite, please comment and place a link to one or more sample icon(s) if you can!
